In honor of the fourth, I figured I’d share four tricks to keep up my writing during holiday functions.  So here we go:

1.  Write 3 pages of longhand writing at some point throughout the day.  Start with a list for the barbecue, if you need to, or list all the stuff you want to get done.  Anything to fill up those pages.

2.  Sneak the laptop into the bathroom and set the timer for a ten minute sprint.

3.  Write a hundred words on “I like holidays in the middle of the week because…”

4.  Recognize that it’s a holiday.  If you have people over, or are going to someone’s home, remember that this is about them.  If you need to take a word count break, then do it.  Enjoy the day.

Happy fourth!

    How true those suggestions are, everyone needs a break from their routine, but it's important to take care of yourself as well and set aside that 'me' time to keep writing.

    Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Happy holidays to you, too, Darla! I'm glad we inspire each other. That's value beyond price. ~hugs~

  4. Hi, Tess! You're welcome. I agree; everyone needs a break from routine on a periodic basis, if for nothing else than to remind us that routines are useful. ~hugs~
